Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 4 tablespoons barbecue sauce, divided
  • 4 slices white Cheddar, pepper Jack, smoked Gouda or provolone cheese
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns or pretzel rolls, split, toasted
  • Lettuce leaves, tomato slices and red onion slices

Cooking:

  1. Combine Ground Beef, onion and 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.

  2. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. About 1 minute before burgers are done, brush with remaining 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce and top with cheese.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  3. Line bottom half of each bun with lettuce leaves, red onion and tomato, as desired; top with burger. Close sandwiches.
